Garbage, recycling and organics delayed across Niagara

As a result of the cold weather, collection contractor staffing and vehicle issues, curbside garbage, recycling and organics collection continues to be delayed across Niagara.

The collection contractor, Emterra Environmental, was unable to complete all of Friday’s garbage, recycling and organics collection across the region by Sunday, December 31, despite their efforts.

Recycling

The collection contractor will be out tomorrow, January 1, 2018, collecting the remaining recyclable material (Blue and Grey Box) in Grimsby, Lincoln, West Lincoln, Thorold and St. Catharines, making every attempt to finish collecting Friday’s recycling route. Recycling will be complete by end of day January 1, 2018. Residents in these municipalities are asked to leave their Blue and Grey Box material curbside and it will be collected.

Residents in Niagara Falls whose regular collection day is Friday are being asked to remove their recyclable material from the curb and place it out for collection on Saturday, January 6, 2018. There is no limit to the amount of recycling material that residents can place curbside for collection. If your Blue and Grey boxes are full, residents may use a rigid container or a clear plastic bag to place recyclables at the curb.

Garbage and Organics

Residents in Fort Erie, Grimsby, Lincoln, Niagara Falls, St. Catharines, Thorold and West Lincoln whose regular collection day is Friday and have not had their garbage and/or organic material collected by 7 p.m. on Sunday, December 31 are being asked to remove their remaining material from the curb and place it out for collection on Saturday, January 6, 2018. Residents in the affected areas will be permitted to place three (3) garbage bags or containers curbside for collection on Saturday, January 6, 2018.

There is no limit to the amount of organic material that residents can place curbside for collection. If your Green Bin is full, residents may use a rigid container or yard waste bags to place organics at the curb.
